COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich, decadent and full-bodied. The intense, roasted malt flavor is derived from two types of chocolate malt and raw cocoa nibs. Whole vanilla beans introduced post-fermentation adds complexity and enhance the dessert-like qualities.
As depicted on the label, this full-bodied ­beer salutes American pilots who airdropped packages of chocolate into post-­WWII Berlin, bringing joy and community together in the face of adversity. We’ve partnered with Food For The Hungry who we consider to be the “chocolate bombers” of today, delivering regular food rations and non-food items to the struggling people of South Sudan who are in desperate need.

Bottle that I had put in the freezer and forgot about it till I got back from swimming in LT. Good thing high ABV kept it from freezing. Pours a very dark brown color and nice tan head. Milk chocolate and cream on the nose. Mouthfeel is silky smooth and creamy on the tongue. The flavor is creamy chocolate and some vanilla. As usual, better and creamier as it warms.

22oz bomber from www.craftbeerkings.com, thanks online shop. Poured a thinner bodied deep dark blackish brown with a smaller off white head. Aroma of cream, chocolate malts, cola, touch of soy. Flavor is a bit stronger with soy sauce, cola, bakers bitter chocolate, citrus acid, black olives, rotting banan peel. Body is a bit on the thin side for an 8% porter, softer carbonation and an average aftertaste.
